ANGEL TREE – In the Lobby you will see a small Christmas tree where you can place an “Angel” which you can dedicate to a loved one no longer with us on earth. These Angels cost £2 each and the money raised will go towards Church funds. All the “Angels”  will then be prayed for at the Christmas Eve and Day services.
PRAYER WALKS – Every 1st  Tuesday of the month, Tuesday  3rd Dec & 7th Jan. Please come along with or without a dog, and we all have a good chatter, and then stop, reflect and pray at several intervals along the way, we start at 9.30 am on Commonside near the old Rectory. We then end up at Greyhound at 11 ish where we have a ‘cuppa’, and/or one of the lovely breakfast options. Please join us for this lovely social time – you don’t have to walk first – just let Carol or Tricia know if you would like to be there for food, so we have an idea of numbers.  Thank you!
